Meet Lucia

Hometown: Minnetonka, Minnesota
Lucia Erickson began her training at age three with the Academy of Russian Ballet in Eden Prairie Minnesota, under the direction of Svetlana Gavrilova and Kirill Bak. She participated in summer courses at Minnesota Dance Theater, Marat Daukayev School of Ballet, the Rock School, the School of Philadelphia Ballet, formerly School of Pennsylvania Ballet, and the School of American Ballet. At 16, Lucia moved to Philadelphia and began training at the School of Philadelphia Ballet. There, Erickson performed in George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker, Angel Corella’s Swan Lake, and Samantha Dunster’s La Fille Mal Gardée, Snow White, Prince Charming, and Peter Pan. After two years in the school, Lucia joined PBII for the 2018-2019 season, and was promoted to corps de ballet for the 2019/2020 season.
